Thrive Market Review
If you’ve been to my blog before, you may have seen a reference here and there to Thrive Market. I wanted to do a full Thrive Market review. I want to share with my readers why I chose a Thrive Market subscription, and why you should too!
If you don’t know about Thrive Market, they offer real, healthy and wholesome food at Wholesale prices. Another very cool aspect of Thrive Market is that for every subscription purchased, Thrive donates another membership to a teacher or a family in need.
HuHot Mongolian Grill has been a favorite of mine for quite some time. After discovering that I had Celiac disease, I was very happy to discover that there were many HuHot gluten free options!
I recently visited a HuHot in Tulsa, Oklahoma and realized that they have done a huge overhaul on their menu. Now, all of the “signature sauces” are gluten free. This is an amazing update for two reasons! First, those of us who have celiac or gluten sensitives/allergies can now have all of the delicious sauces. Second, the risk for cross-contamination has gone down substantially. I e-mailed the company and received a very prompt response that all signature sauces are now gluten free at all locations.
While HuHot gluten free options are abundant, it is important to note that HuHot is not a completely gluten free restaurant. I think that this is a good thing, because you can go out with your non-allergy friends, and they don’t have to feel like they’re missing out at all.
Everyone probably knows by now that it’s best to limit exposure to pesticides. The Dirty Dozen by the Environmental Working Group let’s you know the the top 12 fruits and vegetables that currently have the most pesticide residue. The best option is to purchase these items organic, but sometimes it’s difficult to find organic products or just too expensive. This is my favorite way to wash conventional fruits and vegetables, but you can use it on organics too! For organics, I typically only rinse with cold water.
I will be posting a new gluten free recipe every Monday. Make sure to subscribe to my weekly newsletter so that you don’t miss out!
Gluten Free Chicken Casserole
This gluten free chicken casserole is one my favorite slow cooked meals! It is inexpensive, simple to make, and the ingredients can be adjusted based on what you have in your pantry or freezer. I adapted this from a recipe that I found over at A year of slow cooking.
